Dr. Polaris, a medical education technology startup that helps students grasp concepts, and prepare for higher learning entrance exams, has recently launched the Medical PG Entrance Prep space with their latest study programme Study-a-thon. It is an Internal/Semester based Study marathon series with scheduled pre-recorded MBBS theory-based videos, Live PG Entrance Sessions, Live Practical Videos, Practical Mocks, Qbanks & Test Series, to make sure that the aspirants are theory-ready, practical-ready & PG-entrance ready for the current Internal/Semester topics, according to an official statement.
Speaking about the initiative, Founder & CEO of Dr. Polaris, Dr Sharook Mubarak, said:
Medical PG entrance is one of the most competitive exams in India. Approximately 2 lakh aspirants attend the exam every year, and only 15% to 20% get into the PG seat. One of the best solutions for grasping a seat is to start the preparation early and be consistent without losing focus on MBBS. However, that’s easier said than done.
In reality, MBBS students from day one tend to focus more on PG Entrance prep, which targets objective question patterns, which may make the student compromise their foundation & conceptual part of medical learning. The company has been developing a solution where a student achieves a good foundation along with PG Entrance prep – all aligned in a single line. After months of research & preparation, the platform is launching PG prep, intending to introduce a new culture of MBBS to PG Entrance learning, and study-a-thon series is a perfect starter for that.
According to Dr. Mubarak, PG Entrance Prep is a marathon for sure & to finish that, the startup is introducing some Short High-Intensity systematic sprints like Study-a-thon. During each academic year of MBBS life, the students will have 3 Semesters/Internal exams. Study-a-thon will primarily focus on preparing them for PG Entrance based on their current Semester/Internal topics and giving them resources to make them university exam ready. This way, they can focus on their MBBS & PG Entrance simultaneously.
Dr. Polaris has provided supplementary learning content for MBBS students to augment their campus learning for over a year. It has around 1000 hours of CBME-integrated video lectures, 1800+ digital notes, and 100 animated cases. The company aims to improve society’s health outcomes by addressing the learning and knowledge needs of medical aspirants, students and the medical community worldwide.
